Limericks

Little vampire

Little vampire (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A guy in the mood for a bite
Swept his cape aside and went for the site
But the girl in his clutches
Was hobbling on crutches
They both tripped so he flew off stage right

There was a young girl of Killarney
Who was known far and wide for her blarney
She flattered the men
Taking them all for a spin
‘Til the wives packed her off to the carney

I must give credit to Madeleine Begun Kane for introducing the art of limerick writing to me and for her ideas that get me writing them.  I may not always pull them off but I have fun trying.  Thanks, Madeleine!

Terri at The Purple Treehouse, invites us to share some humor.  http://purpletreehouse.blogspot.com/2012/05/life-is-tough-we-want-humor-funny-bunny.html

Pearl

There once was a woman named Pearl

Who loved her hair wavy with curls

But the minute she hit the steamy street,

Her hair fell flat like her feet

Then she pouted and cried like a girl!

Braggart

A fellow who tended to brag

Was married to a hideous hag

Together their inelegance

Made their company ponderous

A burden, cumbersome, a drag

Fire Bug

Guy Fawkes Bonfire

A fellow was playing with fire

And created an enormous bonfire

The inferno blazed

Making the fire chief so crazed

He bought his ex-wife a sapphire!

Clout

A man who was proud of his clout

Ruled his life with increasing loud shouts

His resonance pealed

With such unyielding wield

He came to be known as a lout

Gourmet Jelly Beans

These are my Jelly Belly jelly beans, and you ...

A fellow who loved fine cuisine

Even ate gourmet jelly beans

With essence of truffle and caviar

But his favorite by far, came out of a jar

Sicilian-style pasta with sardines

Bad Mood

A fellow was in a bad mood

He pouted, grimaced and stewed

He continued his dysfunction

By his rueful compunction

And extended his ongoing brood

Spite

A woman who loved a good fight

Married a man with strong spite

So they hurt and annoyed

And irritated and exploited

Each other all day and all night.

Saddled

A gal with a very long name

Wished for a shorter one

Like Ann or Patty Jane

Instead she was saddled

With a moniker so padded

Even telephone solicitors were addled!

Limerick Challenge

Back in the days when Granny was but a young f...

A gal who seemed guileless and sweet

Had a habit of delightful deceit

When alone and concealed

She danced naked in heels

With the shades drawn so no one could peek

It wasn’t that she was a poor dancer

Or that she didn’t look good as a prancer

But the dance that she chose

Should be done on the toes

And fans used as a proper enhancer
